We follow the following steps for preventing:
Barrel Tile Roof:
If your house is fixed with Spanish barrel tiles, then definitely there are chances for the animals to get into the holes and party there. To avoid all these what we do is we bolt in steel screen over these holes to keep the animals out.
Roof Lines / Soffits:
Soffit is another safe place for the critters. They easily enter into the gap and get inside the roof lines. We seal it up and we make sure that soffits are secured down the roof. We will be installing a steal sheet screen along with the edges, so that the critter won’t make a re-entry again.
It’s an animal magnet, if you have elevated home with a crawlspace beneath. Many homes have concrete block and some left wide open. Animals like rats, raccoons, opossums, armadillos are experts in finding holes. We install a heavy steel screen, around the entire perimeter of the house, deep into the ground in order to keep wildlife out.
We do some more preventive measures apart from these methods.
